Week In Review: Career Guilt, Buckling Down and… Glitter

Hi friends, How are you? I missed last week’s Week In Review so am feeling a little out-of-routine. I apologize now – this post is heavy on actor stuff. Maybe you can substitute your own goals or career path to make it more relatable? This last week was freaking hard. Emotionally I just… man, I just had a really hard time.   You know what I discovered? I discovered that of all the triggers that…

Little Things In a Fall Week: Feeling Good (Week In Review)

Hi lovelies, I’m here as usual to link up with Meg and appreciate the little accomplishments in my previous week. ‘Cause when does taking time to appreciate the little things not make you feel all warm and fuzzy?  Last week I… Meg knows what she’s talking about. Go check it out!   Spent a couple days in Stratford, Ontario with my parents and saw two fabulous shows Where I will be one day…

A Day In The Life: My First Job (What I Ate Wednesday)

I have two jobs.  One, is my “joe job.” It is the one that, at the moment, is there to pay the bills. Thankfully, I love it. I host and serve at my all time favorite vegan restaurant. The people are glorious, its always crazy busy and the food is….so good.  But my first job, is my life as an actor. Even when it is not paying me money, I see this…

Week In Review: Being My Own Manager

Oie. Last week was a busy week.  If you didn’t notice, there was no time last week for me to give over to a blog post, let alone many things. I did not cook once.  I did shower, though.  My life as an actor means I am my own manager. I am my own business. This requires a lot of time and effort and many hours spent. On good weeks, this includes lots of…

Hard Decisions, (Crappy) Job Luck and Typical Life Timing

I’m doing some classic Thinking Out Loud today to catch ya’ll up on a couple things.  First up…   Jobs.   Do you remember last summer my fiasco with the business I was working for, and how they went under and didn’t pay me? Yeah, well to catch you up on that….. I still haven’t been paid. I’ve been partnered with a claims officer for the entire…

Cora… You Need To Stop.

I need to stop.  I need to slow down.  I need to stop pushing myself; putting so much pressure on myself.  I’m running myself to the ground in the effort to eliminate space.  I’m filling every gap of time with Emails Screens Scrolling Clicking Submitting So much friggen scrolling and clicking. I’m not looking out, I’m only ever looking down. I’m running at full speed Ramped…

Bravery Is A Muscle: Week In Review

Bravery is a muscle.  Muscles are not only bulging biceps, twitching delts or popping calves built at the gym… we have emotional and mental muscles, too. And, like those muscles in the gym, they must be worked consistently if we want them to exist. These mental muscles however – in my opinion – can be some of the most challenging to work.   Sorry. Gross picture. But I had to.   Different people find different things…

Soften: It Is Fear That Paralyzes Us

Soften. I’ve had this word on repeat over the past week or so.  Not “breathe” Not “relax” Not even “release.” But… soften.  It seems to work in a completely different way than the rest. Like an authority figure that immediately gets your respect and attention. My body understands it.  If you’ve been reading recently I think you’ll know that I&#8217…

Perseverance: The Diary of an Actor Going After Her Dreams

  I feel like I may need to rename my blog, “The diary of a struggling actor going after her dreams.” As I now transition away from training mode – which is the only phase you all have ever known me – into the real world, my life is going to revolve around auditions, hope, prep, rejections, auditions, hope, prep, rejections. This blog of mine may very well serve to document the life of an…

Is It Dangerous To Dream? (Thinking Out Loud)

Last week, I had an audition for the Stratford Festival. You may recall that this is my dream. Being an actor at this festival is the absolute, ultimate, biggest dream I have.  It was something to even be granted an audition, as this in of itself is a competitive area of decision. I was proud and so excited to even be given the chance to be seen.    The two weeks leading up…
